You can see it now: Fresh air. Blue skies. Skiing down the mountain with your kid. Everyone smiling, laughing and having a good time.
You get off the chairlift with your child. Together you ski down the mountain and feel the thrill of sliding fast down a snowy hill. The picture in your mind is a perfect winter day outdoors.
So why do you keep hearing things like this:
"But Moooom! It's too cold."
"Can we go back inside?"
"This is too hard! I'll never be able to ski!"

"I feel like the Online Family Ski School gave me lots of little tips that made the whole process of teaching my boys to ski easier and more positive. I don't think I would have thought of playing "red light, green light" on my own, but it is one of the boys' favorites and it teaches a skill while having fun and playing a game."
- Sarah S, mom of 6, 4 and 2 year old boys
